CEREC same day crowns are types of dental restoration that cover broken or cracked teeth. Dental crowns are an option when the cavity damage on the teeth is too large for a dental filling. They restore the appearance, function, shape, and size of your teeth.
Traditional crown installation requires two dental appointments and several weeks of waiting in between. Advances in dental technology at the dental office in New Hamburg made same day crowns possible.
What are CEREC same day crowns?
CEREC means Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. This kind of crown uses the technology of computer-aided manufacturing/computer-aided design (CAM/CAD).
The dentist’s first step in creating your CEREC same day crowns is to take digital impressions of your teeth. Then, he scans the teeth’s surface to create a 3D replica using the CEREC software.
A milling machine inside the dental office receives the 3D representation. The machine carves the crown from a ceramic block. The whole process at the dental office in New Hamburg only takes about fifteen minutes.
Your dentist polishes the final outcome of the dental prosthesis and tries it on you. If you are both happy with how it looks and feels on your mouth, he then cements it on your teeth.
How do CEREC same day crowns differ from traditional crowns?
- The whole process of getting CEREC same day crowns takes only one day. Traditional crowns have weeks of waiting time between your first appointment and the day you get your final crown.
- Same day installation of crowns avoids having to wear temporary crowns. They are uncomfortable in the mouth.
- CEREC crowns only consist of ceramic. They blend easily with the other teeth.
Save your teeth while managing your time well. You only need one appointment at the dental office in New Hamburg to get same day dental crowns.
